At Turning Pointe, faster – except when responding to a student in crisis – is rarely better. Team Turning Pointe typically takes care to study and research next steps on most decisions. Then typically those decisions have to be vetted by key stakeholders. This slower approach was critical in building a strong foundation from which we can launch new programs. From adding classrooms for different age groups or abilities in the CN Day School or pilot programs in our Foglia Family Foundation Adult Services; we care for one student at a time to ensure students make measurable progress.

There are only three instances when faster at Turning Pointe really is better.

One is in October, when we race pumpkins. Yes, we race pumpkins on wheels. You may be surprised by how fast they roll. Thanks to pumpkin race kits built by students, you can race a pumpkin down a hill or ramp! It is a fun, inclusive endeavor that allows our students to gain employability skills by building the kits. The Pumpkin Race tradition is a favorite and while our public event will be missed this year, our students will still race at school and we hope you will as well. You can purchase kits online at www.turningpointeautismfoundation.org and upload pictures of your pumpkins and races on social media.

Faster is also better (or so I am told), when you are behind the wheel of Motor Trend’s 2020 Car of the Year. A torch red Chevy Corvette Stingray screams “speed.” You can see for yourself by visiting Chevy of Naperville. A beautiful new Corvette is on display there and can be yours if you purchase a raffle ticket before December 3rd.
